    Mighty mouse, another apple success. I was surprised at the scrolling, I couldnt get the side buttons working, but I liked the clicking.

    Than, I looked at powerbooks. :noes:
    I cant decide between the 12" and the 15". the twelver would be super cool for mobility, but I love the 15" screen. I have a year to decid, but it's gonna be hard.

    Not one apple person askedme if I needed help. :ugh:

    the buttons on the side take some getting used to, its more of a squeeze, than it is a button click.

    I got a 12" ibook, and the only thing i don't like about it is the resolution, but the mobility of it fucking rocks.

    While mobility is important to me, if i had the funds i would have gone with the 15" w/superdrive.

    $0.02

    I thought the MM was supposed to have left and right click?

    I've got a 15" PB that I absolutely love, but lately I've been wanting a 12" PB to watch downloaded TV shows on, etc. Ain't no way I'm going to drop the cash until after the Intel switch though.

    It does, but it also has side buttons.

    it does but it senses where your fingers are when you click instead of creating two separate buttons.

    The side buttons on the mighty mouse are just uncomfortable. Would also be nice if you could map them to specific keys. ie. Back and forward in Safari.

    I LOVE the side buttons and you can map them, but they are mapped as one button.

    :hsugh: Far from. I use it for Expose and it's awesome. I'm going to get a MM for home just because I use it so much now.

    How do you find it as far as comfort?

    I'm still stuck using my Microsoft IntelliMouse because I can't seem to find anything as comfortable... at least for me.

    I'd rather map the button to a specific key command. Like cmd - -> and cmd- <-. Or any other key map. Freedom of control.

    if you lay your right click finger on the mouse, it won't register because it doesn't "think" that anything is there since its touch sensative.

    yes, you have to pretend like there are two separate buttons on there. it senses where the finger is when the click happens (correct me if im wrong) and determines if it was a right or left click.

    I think the top layer is very thin, and underneath are two seperate slices.

    :uh: so much fuckin misinformation in this thread. I can tell right off the bat who owns one and who doesn't.

    Just place your hand on the mouse as if it were a two button mouse. It's very natural if you own one. Then click away as you normally would. Between the feel and sound, you have to look at the mouse to realize there is only one physical button there.

    There is a left click, a right click, a ball click, and the two sides pressed in for a side click. The clicks are all programable. Then the ball on top is indeed a ball like on the bottom of the old roller ball mice, but miniaturized. It goes in every possible direction and again, it also clicks.

    Great mouse really. I have left click as left click, right click as right click, side click as expose (fuckin worth it right there, OMG) and ball click set to bring up dashboard.
